Cyber Shaman`s bio
My name is Ken Langelier, I grew up in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Not from a musically
versed family, I got into music only in my late teens when I discovered Pink Floyd and Peter
Gabriel`s Passion of the Christ soundtrack in the 90`s. Psychedelics like LSD, psilocybin and
cannabis gave me access to my musical loving self and I became a big fan of grunge music (
Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Soundgarden, Tool), then punk ( No FX, Bad Religion,
Pennywise ), industrial music (Nine Inch Nails, prick, Stabbing westward, Kmfdm ) and Trip Hop
( Tricky, Sneaker Pimps, Massive Attack).
I then discovered Raves and electronic ( Techno ) music in 1996 and started to really
appreciate this genre a lot more for its really powerful sounds and beats. I started to listen to
Bjork, Crystal Method, Fluke and also lots of DJs around the world.
I am a computer programmer so also in the late 90’s, I discovered Scream Tracker, an
old music production program that made me love to create songs with a computer. Back then,
the possibilities where a bit limited so I stopped pretty fast and forgot about music production
for 20 years.
Last December, I got a new Iphone 6s. I then discovered Garageband and was so
impressed with it that I started creating new tracks again. This was really just for fun at first, but
the results were better that I expected and everybody around me likes the music I produced. So
I decided to go all in and promote myself on the web. I now have a Soundcloud and Bandcamp
page, and I am creating at a frantic pace of 5 to 7 minutes of new music daily. Already having
collaborated on several projects with other producers.
I have now more then 75 tracks and counting. Most are Techno, trance or House, but I
am experimenting in a lot of other styles ( Dubstep, Ambient, Chill, Drum & Bass, etc.). I have
truly found myself a passion and this really fills a hole in the creative part of myself. I am so
thrilled to create music that I love and I want to share it to the world so others can peak into my
soul and creative mind.
